Originally two cottages, Littlecote Cottage is a Grade II listed property but benefits from being a contemporary family home, pleasantly situated within this sought-after village. The original house has been completely rebuilt from the first floor upwards, including the chimney and roof. Alongside, the old barn has been sympathetically converted into a fabulous extension consisting of a kitchen/family room with a vaulted ceiling, featuring oak frames and engineered oak floor. The kitchen is sublime, with a large pantry, bespoke Cheverall units and a Nordpeis woodburning stove. There is a cloakroom, utility room housing the ground source heat pump and a large dining room with a vaulted ceiling, and garden and woodland views. There is underfloor heating throughout for a pleasant ambient temperature. The link to the original cottage is a beautiful transition from modern to character, with strategically placed windows and there are good ceiling heights as the floors have been lowered. The snug has an exposed brick open fireplace with flue. The pretty, third bedroom is on the ground floor and is double aspect. The feature oak stairs lead to the vaulted landing which bathes the house in light. Both double bedrooms have vaulted ceilings, fitted wardrobes and views. There is a shower room serving bedrooms two and three, whilst the main bedroom has a wonderful en-suite bathroom including a steel bath with shower over and mosaic Oyster glass tiling. The secondary structure consists of a double garage with a cloakroom and workshop. Upstairs there is an open plan studio area with a tea station, two bedrooms and a shower room. This is a fantastic opportunity to convert this space into an annex subject to the relevant consents. Viewing is strongly recommended to fully appreciate the overall qualities of this unique village property.
The property stands alone in a large plot of approximately 1.3 acres, surrounded by woodland, on the outskirts of the village, just 1 mile from Hungerford. One is greeted by magnificent ‘cricket bat’ willow trees as you enter the property. The nearest neighbour is about 700m away. There are large gardens, a natural pond and a hidden enchanted garden. An old pump stands proud in front of the cottage.
Septic tank, mains water, air and ground source heat pump.
